Day Trip: Austin (2016.04.19)

The old Seaholm Power Plant, with new residential high-rises beyond it (Copyright © 2016 by Wil C. Fry. Some rights reserved.)   The Cheesecake Factory, Austin (Copyright © 2016 by Wil C. Fry.)

Day Trip: Colorado Bend State Park (2016.04.14)

The author, sitting atop a boulder near Gorman Falls (Image by a nice lady I met on the trail.)   I got that restless feeling again — the urge to travel, to see new things, to walk in a wilderness. The least expensive way to satisfy that thirst is to visit a state park, so[…]

RnB ready to party (Copyright © 2016 by Wil C. Fry.) Saturday, 2016.02.06, the four of us drove to Austin, Texas, for the birthday party of Carmelite, the daughter of one of my wife’s coworkers. The entire day was fun for us. Following are a few brief observations. • The trip itself was an hour[…]

2015.02.12.TH

Tuesday (10th): Story Time in the morning, Arby’s for lunch. Went to Cameron Park Zoo (Waco) in the afternoon. Both kids had a really good time. BW kept trying to pull the wagon instead of ride in it. He even pulled it with RL inside, for quite a ways. At one point, another boy began[…]

2014.11.11.TU: Day Trip to Watauga

(Sorry no photos for the past several days. They’re on Flickr, but I’ve been prioritizing my time and haven’t posted any here. Hopefully I’ll do that later today. It’s probably not a big issue since most of my family was on the road this weekend for my Uncle Gary’s memorial service in South Texas.) For[…]

We visited the Cameron Park Zoo in Waco today — if I’m not mistaken, it’s only BWF’s second time there. Both kids had a blast, and got plenty of exercise and fresh air. We got there just in time for an early lunch (at the zoo’s concession stand, which has decent food), and spent at[…]

Went to the Mayborn Museum in Waco today, part of which is a “discovery center” for kids (“of all ages”), after reading reviews that some people liked it better than the McKenna Museum we recently visited in New Braunfels. It was an uneventful trip; we arrived in Waco in time for lunch at Burger King[…]

2014.05.21: New Braunfels Trip

(Images will be delayed due to computer issues. I’m typing this entry in “Safe Mode”.) Today was mostly consumed by a day trip to New Braunfels, which we’d hoped to do yesterday, but didn’t. We visited the McKenna Children’s Museum for most of that time.

2014.05.15: My Brother’s Wedding (Ft. Worth)

Today was the day of my brother’s wedding. I got a late start for three reasons, and so thought I would miss it (but didn’t).

Heather and the boys followed us to Ikea in Round Rock this morning — their first time in such a store. Heather found a few things she needed for her house, while MF and I bought items as well. (On the way there, we were stuck in traffic for 30 minutes; it turned out that[…]

I took the van out & filled up with gas (17.7 mpg on our second tank, almost all of it city driving, and including the one-hour drive through the safari yesterday at about 2 miles per hour), then washed it — a pathetic attempt to remove cow & camel slobber from the day before. By[…]
